The Interdisciplinary Thematic Institute (ITI) MAKErS analyzes the making of European society, looking both at how Europe makes a society and how this society makes itself European. To this end, this international center of excellence brings together specialists of the sciences of government (law, economics, political science, statistics) and of the sciences of society (sociology, demography, geography, history of science)
Over an eight-year period, MAKErS will develop an ambitious research program designed to bring about a renewal of the object and methods of European studies. An innovative training plan on these subjects will also be introduced for master’s students. The Institute also intends to produce knowledge and know-how that will prove useful to policy-makers.
The University of Strasbourg’s Interdisciplinary Thematic Institutes (ITI) aim at bringing teaching and research, faculties and research centers and students and researchers closer. They are attributed IDEX funding for 4 to 8 years over the 2021-2028 period.
